I was under the impression that I was paying you to tell me what the problem could be.
Expert:  Steve replied 1 year ago.
I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
if the fan isn't running, then that is by far the most likely cuase.
it is also possible that the compressor could be faulty, one of the sensors that informs the AC system is faulty, or that there is an engine cooling system fault
if the fan isnt running and this is confirmed, then it is almost certainly the issue.
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
